Speaking to media persons at the Head-office of JDU which is situated at New Checkon Hangkhanpau Taithui said that the National executive meet of JDU held in Patna on 4th of March has decided to contest only the Outer Manipur Parliamentary constituency in the approaching 17th Lok Sabha election even though they have alliance at the centre with the NDA. He added that regarding the Inner Manipur parliamentary Constituency the party will not contest it but will support to other party which will be decided in due course of time. He further said that they will support the inner constituency candidate not only by looking at his party but also his/her individual quality.
Taithui recalled that the party has been campaigning for the last one and half month at various segments.

He added that their party will mainly focus on development and eradicating corruption. Remarking the government of Bihar under Nitish Kumar as his ideal government making drastic positive changes in a short span of 14 years, he claimed that the state will see a positive change in such manner.
Taithui concluded that the party will focus on the development of both the hill and valley equally.
